Mexican gray wolf Reintroduction

We continually hear about “problem” wolves…There are no “problem” wolves. The problem exists with how we humans define restoration.
– George Wuerthner, Lessons from the West
The reintroduction of the Mexican gray wolf in parts of its historic range in Arizona and New Mexico has been one of the major challenges of the last decade in the region. Like its relatives throughout the West, the wolf faces opposition from many ranchers who fear that this restoration threatens their livelihood and their control over public lands.We believe that native wildlife species have a right to exist. Public lands should only be managed for multiple uses where those uses don’t conflict with the conservation of native plants and animals. In the case of the Mexican gray wolf, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service needs to step up and manage for the recovery of a rare species. We’re hoping that they will.
